Interislander Cook Strait Ferry - Wellington Ferry Terminal

save place
Ferry Between the North and South Islands
Perhaps one of the most iconic kiwi experiences to be had in New Zealand is to catch the ferry between Wellington and Picton.

While the Cook Strait doesn't seem too big, it actually takes around three hours to negotiate the occasionally rough seas between New Zealand's two main islands.

However, you are almost always greeted by beautiful views of the Marlborough Sounds, and a sunset or two. If you're really lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of some wild dolphins chasing alongside the ferry.
